Getting Results – How Long Before I Get Results with High Potency Supplements?

More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, a type of dementia linked to changes in memory, mood, and behavior. While currently there is no known cure, a new study offers hope in the form of healthy fats found naturally in fish. Researchers in China recently conducted a study using mice and discovered that Omega-3 fatty acids may help remove “brain waste” linked to Alzheimer’s—mainly plaque deposits left behind by abnormal protein buildup.
